Astra Lodge Falls Creek Launches Australia’s Most Luxurious Ski Lodge

May 17, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Falls Creek Victoria finally welcomes a ski lodge worthy of its pristine alpine surrounds. Astra Lodge has set new standards in the Australian ski industry with the family-owned hotel recently winning the title of Australia’s Best Boutique Ski Lodge 2016 at theWorld Ski Awards in Kitzbühel, Austria. The newly renovated ski-in ski-out lodge seduces guests with exceptional features including panoramic mountain views, heated magnesium mineral pool and fine dining restaurant.

Located within the heart of the Falls Creek Village, Astra Lodge is just a short private oversnow ride away from village parking. Boasting interiors that feature local design, the materials are robust and natural. Grant Amon Architects have achieved a simplistic and stylish European alpine look complete with leather, timber, stone and tiles all locally sourced and ecofriendly. Rooms come complete with views of the stunning surrounds, whilst interiors include luxury furnishings that have been hand-sourced from around the world with a keen eye for detail.

Rosy Seaton, who co-owns the lodge with her husband, Seumas, grew-up locally. Rosy has placed focus on Astra achieving world-class service while remaining family friendly with a charming intimacy that puts the lodge in a league of its own. “We understand how important family time is on a ski holiday, when the kids aren’t in ski school they can enjoy playing in the communal kids’ room or toasting marshmallows on the open fire in the Astra lounge”.

The thoughtful and friendly staff are led by General Managers, Tom Simpson and his wife Sally who ensure that every guest receives a personalised experience that is tailored to their needs “we love to see all guests relaxed and comfortable, we take customer service very seriously, beginning before they even arrive. It’s our privilege to have such a beautiful venue to host our guests within”.

The lodge includes an Italian fine dining restaurant and premium wine cellar that is sure to be a natural draw-card even for those who aren’t staying as guests. Helmed by hatted chef, Emma Handley, the restaurant focuses on the best locally sourced and seasonal produce with pasta made in-house daily.


One of the most desirable attractions for insiders at Falls Creek are the services of world-renowned Skimetric Director, Adalbert Leibetseder. When he’s not training and fine-tuning the equipment of world-champion skiers in Austria, Bert calls Astra Lodge his Southern-Hemisphere winter home & is taking bookings for his personalised, ski program and boot fittings during the Australian ski season. This experience takes place only at Astra Lodge & complements a new state-of-the-art ski and boot drying room.

Massages, physiotherapy treatments and wet and dry saunas will all help to re-energise weary skiers at the end of the day. Theday spa at Astra lets guests relax with a dram of whisky, with the barber over a hot towel shave and moustache groom, or a glass of champagne while the onsite hair stylist completes a fresh blow dry or cut to help remove the dreaded helmet hair.

Astra Lodge is currently taking bookings and will open June 10th for the 2017 ski season.
